Yesterday was the last day of the free Windows 10 upgrade offer by Microsoft released since last year of July 29th 2015, Making a decision is not easy and deciding if it’ll be a great choice to make a switch and so with that said. I’ll like to make a good run down if that decision will be right for you!
One of the things when it comes to upgrading a operating is one of things I’d do first is make the time and backup your files before doing a upgrade. I do remember when my friends laptop it did save my files when didn’t effect any of the files that still remain on his computer, I won’t trust that you don’t continue that method that way, anything can happen when doing that upgrades like that its best you make good judgement on backing up first.before if anything where to happen to those files, then you’ll have to start over from scratch and that’s something I won’t recommend continuing the upgrade before upgrading.
Backing your files can be easy and can be backup useing online back-ups with good encryptions like
- Spider Oak
- Google Drive
“Free service is not recommended since for it is not heavily encrypted like the paid service are, I stick with something that I’d trust and if paid service isn’t an option then I use the free service as a last resort”
Who is eligible on the Windows 10 upgrade?
Anyone that has a compatible OS with Window 7, 8, or 8.1.can make the upgrade.
What’s new with Windows 10?
WIth windows 10, you notices very little with the windows user interface on Windows 10 it’ll come out close to Windows 7 start menu and Windows 8 metros interface. The operation looks nice and all but wll attact many users with its interface and I myself do think its really nice and I had presonal hands on with Windows 10 when using it with friends, Mutual friends and over the store. I don’t think its bad but I know personally switch was not for me and I know for a moment that I won’t wanted make the switch personally because I had Windows 7 for whole year with on my customized PC and I wouldn’t wanted to do just yet.and I’d be better off testing it in a virtual machine instead of installing with my current parition with WIndows 7, I just wouldn’t it at all since I myself never had issues with Windows 7 and even after the release, WIndows 10 had come up with device issues and most of the software old softwaire is not compatible with WIndows 10 just yet and continuing on forward in 2016 the software will continue to have bug isses and software related issues. Cortana is a Voice command programs like Apple’s Siri, neat thing with Cortana is it can bring up programs, search results and so fore. what’s comes up with concerns are privacy issues embbed with Win 10 and can be difficult to fully disable cortana, that will require to download special programs
The end of the day, I can’t say say to everyone not to upgrade but testing it it out will come with a price WIndows 10 will at first feel if you where testing out and personal see how that goes for you, Windows 10 will get better over time with updates and patches but I know that it something that Microsoft will have u with. For me I’m fine with Windows 7 and can’t see myself upgrading anytime soon “until Microsoft stops supporting Windows 7 till the year 2025”. I myself don’t want to upgrade with a OS that’s working right now and dealing with software issues that right there is a no, no in my book with so much reminds me with Windows Vista 3rd party incompablity software for XP. If your like me, The best thing to do is wait for meantime, dough after the July 29th you will be paying for the software cost of $119.99.
